    'We were wrong': CBS's Lara Logan apologizes for Benghazi report

    (CNN) -- CBS correspondent Lara Logan apologized Friday and said the network was "wrong" for a "60 Minutes" report that raised questions about the Obama administration's response to last year's attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. The assault left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
    Turns out that the so-called whistleblower was lying through his teeth, in an attempt to publish a book for the wingnutosphere that he could make money off of. Turns out that he wasn't even there when the attack occurred.

    But incidents like this are rare with CBS, right? They would never slander a president. They never used fake information to claim that Bush was AWOL either. Remember that one? I think you should take anything CBS says with a grain shaker of salt. LOL.

    Another day, another manufactured story from incompetent journalists shot down.

    no, that would have been the initial piece. they've recently learned that it was bull****.













































































    of course, she only retracted the story because she was forced to by the conspiracy. the NSA learned that she visits furniture stores and compulsively clips off the mattress labels before sale. they threatened to leak this to the authorities, and she had no choice but to play ball. this one goes all the way to the top.

    Kinda funny about this is the fact that, after CBS aired the story, FOX News devoted 13 news segments on it, and pushed the story very hard. Now that CBS has retracted the story, all you get from FOX is crickets. They are not saying a single word about the retraction. LOL.

    CBS aired the retraction about 6 hours ago. When CBS first went with the story, FOX News was all over it, and aired a "breaking news" segment within minutes of the story coming out.
